A Bit About Me

My photo
Welcome -- It's January 2016 and I am not giving up on the idea that people may appreciate and benefit from some of my story. I began in 2008 in a quest to blog my reflective experience through the lens of my virtues. Life, while full of rich lessons, did not provide the time and space needed to blog. Some days I wish I had a record of it all, other days I am grateful that I did not make a public exhibition. However, today, I commit to power-up the joy, meaning and purpose in my life. I hope that you will find it inspiring and helpful in your own journey. As a Virtues Project Master Facilitator and Grace Coach, it is my mission in life to help change the culture of our caring. As a humanity, the quality of our relationships is what truly matters. I aim to blog about virtues, what they mean to me and how they inspire, or challenge my life. Follow along with me if you are curious or care to do the same. Leave comments if you can, pose questions or link me if my blog has encouraged you. I look forward to connecting.

I am I

Energy is Everything ~ Everywhere.

Back to energy. If within each cell, we vibrate to the tune of our experience, this makes up the energy of our spirit. The miracle or alchemy is this: when we speak about or recognize virtues in ourselves and others, they become stronger, they grow. By focusing on the virtue, it awakens and begins to grow too.✨ 

As we move from this moment into the next, no matter where our life takes us, when we call on our virtues to help, they do. They can guide and transcend us, helping our hearts to move through the shadows when we cannot find our way. It is possible for the light to enter this way, wherever we are. Naming someone's virtues and the evidence that you saw them practicing is a powerful change agent.

At the center of who I am is an animating force that mobilizes my thoughts into actions. Energy is the force that drives me to my purpose and fuels my every hope & dream. I think that many mysteries of life will be understood once we begin studying the presence of each virtue. "I AM" emits an energy that we have never really considered before, the energy of language and the direct effect we have on our own transformation. One that will move us from our current state to one of true love & deep caring.
